Ubaldo Jimenez is reportedly one of the starting pitchers targeted by the Boston Red Sox according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, who said the Sox have jumped into the mix.
The Red Sox are the latest team to inquire, sources said Tuesday. It's not yet clear how serious that interest is, or how strong a match there would be. The Red Sox have also continued to monitor the Carlos Beltran market. (via CBSSports.com)
Jimenez, who is 5-8 with a 4.08 ERA and 99 strikeouts in 18 starts this season, is also reportedly being targeted by the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers, Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers.
